UK Deal Roundup for July 12th, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Most of today’s offers are continuing from previous weeks, with the GAME group being the only retailers to start a major sale. Retailers tend to use this time of the year to focus on outdoor activities, and gaming doesn’t seem to qualify for that one.

A lot of people have been getting confused over the format of this article. Click on the name of the retailer or the name of the deal to be taken straight to the retailer’s offer page. Further details on the deals, including the best pick of the sale items, can be found in the ‘details here’ link, which will take you back to the relevant UK deal roundup that described the sale in more detail. Clicking on the name of a game will take you to the achievement list.
